Summary
Accompanied by her husband and their ten-month-old son, Angus collects samples from ancient trees to determine where the first olive tree originated, feasts on inky black tapenades and codfish drizzled with olive oil, witnesses the harvesting of olives in Greece, and visits perhaps the oldest olive tree in the world on Crete. The result is a fascinating history and biography of this most influential and irresistible fruit
